hand spun and knitted

I bought some new zealand lamb merino wool in natural colors a while back with the intention to spin it. Veeery soft! Right, first I had to learn how to spin wool. As you might remeber, I got a wheel for my birthday (I still have to take a pic of that one!) Well, since then I've been working on the spinning part and it is a bit more tricky than what I thought, but still a lot of fun. I am learning to make it as even as possible however, I really like those irregular yarns with thick chuncky bits and thin ones... I just like the texture.
I've been working on some stuff which combines different methods to work with wool: felting, knitting, crochet and weaving. I now have to put everything together........ scaaaary hahahaa
Anyway, spinning wool gives a brak everynow and then from the felting soapy hands. One can also watch a movie in the meantime... which is what I'm off to do.
